Vote for Your Favorite New South Bay Eatery, Presented By Wells Fargo
Written By: Tamara Philips
Anne Conness was the chef, partner and co-founder of South Bay favorites, Tin Roof Bistro and Simmzy’s and is now owner and chef of Sausal in El Segundo.
Sausal, meaning “willow” in old Spanish, is named for the vast farmstand that once encompassed much of the South Bay, Rancho Sausal Redondo. With a Mexican-inspired menu that pays homage to the history of Alta California cooking, Conness, brings that rich history forward with a new type of modern-rustic cooking she refers to as Nuevo Rancho Cuisine.
A neutral palette dotted with blues and grays that reflect the restaurant’s seaside location, Suburbia exudes a warm and welcoming environment. The restaurant serves modern, New American cuisine alongside craft beers, wines, and cocktails.
Hey 19 Public House is a retro pub inspired by those developmental years in life when music, culture and good times reigned. A place where people come to eat, drink, dance and enjoy taking a trip back to PeeChees and Farrah Fawcett.

Inspired by the type of beach shack you would trek through the sand to after a day in the water, Craft Shack invites guests to order at the walk-up counter and post-up on the spacious sunny patio overlooking the grassy grounds at The Point. The small but mighty menu features Craft Shack’s own signature burger and some killer dude-food like the Quesadilla Foldover, Nacho Fries, and Poke Tacos.
